An energetic game

As you can see from this happy scene, croquet really is all go.

You can congratulate tournament manager, Graham Clough, the eventual winner of the croquet club's 14 point Handicap event ( on May 18th ) is sitting out while his opponent, Robert Parsons, goes round to the peg and seems, from the amusement of the spectators, to have done something rather silly.

Both finalists gave an immaculate display, but a poor choice of shot by Robert let Graham in to finish with an all-round break and double peg-out.

You can congratulate Graham, who is club secretary, by ringing 01939 233 196. He will be happy to give you details of membership and arrange for one of our members to introduce you to the game.
